Description: I am surprised this Taverna has not been reviewed before as it is long...
I am surprised this Taverna has not been reviewed before as it is long established, always full and really good value. It is located in a small side street just behind the harbour road, next to Lisa's Place and the Harbour Lights Bar. It is a traditional family run taverna which cooks either fresh for you, from the Souvlaki Grill or from a number of pre-cooked dishes which you can view in the kitchen. The prices are really good too. And because it is always busy it has a good atmosphere - Ok the views aren't as good as the harbour side, but you can eat well here for value and then go for a walk and drink at the harbour later.

Evening Meal

Yet another great meal. Atmosphere and friendliness unsurpassed. Always very welcoming and the quality of food although simple is always excellent especially if you go and view the kitchen. It's a must if you visit Lakka.

We stumbled across this restaurant on our last night of our holiday. We were looking for somewhere quick and quiet as we had an early start the next day. We arrived at about 7.30 pm and were the first customers. The lady (owner?) was lovely and showed us into the kitchen to view all the available food and it all... More

Alexandros is a small taverna compared to some others but it has a wonderful local feel to it in a courtyard street setting in the small narrow roads of Lakka. We had the Saganaki Alexandros special to start which was a tasty mix of grilled cheese, tomatoes, peppers and bacon. We also had fried aubergine which is fabulous if you... More

Very friendly restaurant in a secluded courtyard covered by grape vines. Food is very good and the staff very friendly. We eat here several times during our stay and have always had an excellent meal. You can visit the kitchen and look at the dishes prior to making your selection. Traditional Ionian food.

If you like the type of restaurant where they take you to the kitchen and show you all the food, where they always smile and you are never wrong, where they remember you even if you haven't been for a couple of years, and above all that, they food is great and the surroundings are wonderful, this is it.

We have visited Paxos several times and always eat at Alexandros more than anywhere else on our visits. The food is delicious traditional Greek dishes, Alexandros and his wife are friendly and welcoming and the location is a little away from the more hectic tavernas. Our favourite Lakka restaurant by far - and the best value. We travelled with friends... More

This restaurant serves top quality food which is cooked to perfection. Have eaten there more than a few times and we have never been disappointed. Alexandros and his wife obviously take pride and pleasure serving excellent food at very reasonable prices.

Enjoyed several meals here in July 2014. Friendly service and good food which you can go and choose in the kitchen. In its own quiet corner in the centre of Lakka would recommend for its range of typical Greek dishes.

Alexandros and Ourania must be the perfect hosts. We ate at this charming little eatery a few times and had delicious food each time. Just off the beaten track, you could easily miss it, but once you have been, you will go back! Absolutely no pretensions here....what you see is what you get.

Husband and wife team serving traditional Greek food. Set just behind the waters front in a quiet square. Upon arrival we were whisked into the kitchen to be shown a table bearing all the dishes to be served that evening, moussaka, beef, lamb, rabbit all cooked in various ways and wonderful vegetables. Wine served in jugs but perfectly reasonable. Very... More
